The LD of ‘National Day’ said: “From my experience using DTS products for this event I was quite impressed by the reliable performance of the Raptors and also by the light quality of it’s beam. It’s really bright enough to light the football field from over 80 m. throw distance. Also gives impressive stunning Arial looks when pointed up to the sky. If any events like this will come, I have confidence to use the DTS products for my show again.”
